There will be no star pupils next week due to school finishing at 2pm on Thursday 24th March for the Easter holidays. Please ensure that you child is collected promptly at 2pm. School will re-open on Monday 11th April.
Unfortunately we are still finding that we are having lots of cases of head lice reported to school. In order to try and stop them being spread so easily, please can we ask that girls’ hair is tied back into a ponytail and if possible a plait. Girls can still wear appropriate headbands to hold their hair back off their faces as well, as long as they are plain. Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.
The cost of a school meal will be increasing to £2.15 from 11th April 2016 therefore school meals for a whole week will cost £10.75. Please remember that school meals should be paid for via www.schoolmoney.co.uk . If you are having difficulty using the school money system or would like a little help, please pop into the school office and see Mrs Dyer. Please be advised that jacket potatoes will not be available until Monday 11th April at the earliest. There is also a change to the menu next Thursday 24th March, the meal will now be ‘Fish and Chips’, a firm favourite!

COUNTY PRESS ARTICLE
The Isle of Wight County Press is teaming up with the council to launch a petition to government, calling on them to look again at the way the Island is funded. This builds upon the lobbying the council has undertaken to date and the ongoing representations that are being made to government.
The campaign is an opportunity to get the whole Island community involved in making the case to government that the Island is different, unique and that it needs more support.
As parents/carers of Island children, the campaign is asking you to sign the petition and show your support for the Island’s future. Please also encourage your neighbours, friends and family, or anyone you know with an interest in the Island’s future to get involved, by signing the petition.
You can sign the petition here: www.fightforthewight.co.uk
